for hours in difficult positions, and kept awake for days. the report criticizes a lack of transparency by the obama administration, saying its practice of hiding details about rendition and torture "cannot continue to be justified on the basis of national security." a bipartisan group of senators has cancelled a news conference on immigration reform today because of the boston bombing, but still plans to introduce the legislation. the bill reportedly will provide a 13-year path to citizenship for some undocumented people, but would require border controls criticized as near as possible to be put in place first. according to mcclatchy, applicants would have to pay upwards of $2,000 in fines and check in using a probation-style system. if they fell behind on their fines, they could use the right to be in the u.s. according to nbc news, the bill would allocate $4.5 billion for increased militarization and fencing along the u.s.-mexican border and demand an enhanced version of the controversial e- verify system to prevent undocumented immigrants from working. venezuelan opposition candidat

their world view. finally, you mentioned president obama ringgold. this gets to something we call it fight theory. what is your theory on winning the fight? if you start with the compromise position, you will lose. what we've seen in president obama's second term on other issues its boldness. not cutting a bad deal behind- the-scenes, asking the gun manufacturers what you would accept, but instead figuring out what has to be done and proposing it and then barnstorming the country and making republicans free out because they are having to be held accountable to their voters -- freak out. on this issue, for some reason, he has gone back to the weakest part of his presidency when he had the least leveraged and republicans had a fresh mandate in 2011, when he was willing to cut back deals. people like us have to say, no, we have to stand on principle and not just get behind him because he's a democrat. host: do you think there's a strategy behind a strategy that if the president offers a deal republicans don't accept, does that give him more leverage contracts farther to the left? guest: some
